About this event

Yorkshire Talking Heads events are business dinners that feature inspirational speakers.

YTH #6 - The Entrepreneurial University

We're delighted to be joined by Professor Bob Cryan - the Guardian's Inspiring Leader of 2013 and Vice-Chancellor of the Times Higher University of the Year 2013/14.

Professor Bob Cryan will provide a compelling insight into the University of Huddersfield's transformation during the past five years. 

Bob passionately believes that universities should support their local economies - a philosophy that has been crucial to his institution's recent success. 

By drawing on his involvement in creating the new £12m 3M Business Innovation Centre , and his participation in the Leeds City Region Local Enterprise Partnership, Professor Cryan will discuss the University of Huddersfield's journey under his leadership - providing a unique opportunity to hear from this inspiring individual. 

Professor Cryan is also Deputy Lieutenant for West Yorkshire and sits on the HEFCE Strategic Advisory Board for Enterprise and Skills.
